Student California Teachers Association

Older professor mentoring a student at a School of Education event

PLNU's branch of the Student California Teachers Association (SCTA) is an ideal place for aspiring teachers, counselors, and administrators to further pursue their calling with other like-minded individuals.

PLNU's SCTA club offers opportunities for professional development, leadership, and service. Students in PLNU SCTA members have the chance to meet with students from SCTA clubs at other universities to network and learn from and with one another.

SCTA Mission Statement

Our mission is to encourage, build community, mentor, & provide opportunities for professional growth for aspiring teachers. 

Our local PLNU chapter represents one branch of this statewide organization.
